Using Koelle-Friedenwald's thiocholine technique, pterygopalatine ganglia in mice, rats and Syrian hamsters were examined. They are markedly lengthened agglomerations of neurocytes, topographically connected with the media-dorsal surface of the maxillary nerve. These ganglia show great individual and species variations. The different shape of the pterygopalatine ganglion, as well as the way of the origin of glandular branches in hamster, distinguish this species from other investigated rodents.
